Forty Years in the Parks
After 40 years with Parks & Recreation, Mike Turner is retiring. If you’ve enjoyed the Ferris Perennial Garden in Manito Park over the last few decades, you’ve got Mike to thank. Mike says it’s the people that he’ll miss most. “A big part of my social life is just meeting the people that come visit the garden,” says Turner.
Mike's co-workers know him for being a team player, having a contagiously positive attitude, and great passion for his work. “People come here from all over the world and I do not want to disappoint them says Turner. They have high hopes when they come here.”
We’ll all miss Mike and wish him well in his retirement years!
